In the meantime, it’s important to eat, drink or take vitamin C regularly throughout the daytime to help form good collagen.
It’s also important for you to observe the following:-
Forget working with the body bent forwards, or with your head down (in flexion) find another way;
Help your head to stay as balanced on the body as possible (sit up straight – no slouching!);
Look at ways of doing your tasks sitting down, wherever possible (this puts head less into ‘flexion’);
Sit opposite the person you are speaking to always, never keep your head/neck at an angle;
Unstable Cranio-cervical joints need support – wear a Philadelphia (or similar) collar;
Your computer screen & your work need to be elevated, so you are looking straight forwards and not hanging head in flexion;
